85 Red Rocks
Flew into Denver with a friend the day before first show with no tickets, no place to stay and just enough money for tickets for the 3 nights. Brought a bunch of shirts to sell to make money for a trip home.
Hitched a ride down to Morrison and sitting out on main street (it's like a 10 house town) and start some small talk with some local folks about the impending rain storm.
Once she finds out we have no place to stay she says "Well your just gonna have to stay with us". We get to the house in Denver, sits up on the hill overlooking the football stadium. Have a great night partying with some great folks, swapping stories and answering questions about "Why would you do all this just to see a band" - These folks were not Dead Heads. Meals and all - just a wonderful, wonderful experience.
Top it off, they insist on giving us a ride back to Morrison the next morning. We score tickets for all 3 nights on day 1. Spend the next 3 days and nights between the shows and a local camp ground full of thousands of heads havinf fun all night.

I even managed to sell enough shirts to fund my trip home.

Life may be sweeter, for this I don't know ..............
